I am jogging up the hill that leads to the Deer Park Golf Club in Howth. It’s been lashing rain all morning and I am soaked to the bone but I don’t care. I am exhausted yet exhilarated because I am minutes away from the finish line of the Gaelforce Howth Summit 10K. I’m 45 years old and this is my second time competing in this event. If you had told me three years ago, I would be doing this I’d have said you were mad.
It was actually my first-time taking part in a Gaelforce event even though I had heard so much about their adventure races and other events. I have to say, I loved it. There was a great atmosphere & support and the marshals were extremely encouraging & helpful. I will be back!
